Council Approves the Construction Funding of the Hollywood Streetscape Project

Proposed parklet design of the Hollywood Streetscape project

I want to thank our residents, local business owners, City staff, and my Council colleagues for their decade-long support and engagement in taking the Hollywood Streetscape project to the construction phase.

With last night’s approval, the construction of this $2.8 million project is expected to start next month and to be completed in November, this year.

Once completed, the project will add parklets, safe bike lanes and sidewalks, intersection improvements, shade trees, pedestrian-scale lighting, landscaping, benches, and public arts to the Hollywood commercial district around the intersection of Rhode Island Avenue and Edgewood Road.

Additionally, City’s public investment is expected to invite private investments to help revitalize this important commercial district of College Park.
